WeatherTech Spoofs Those Ridiculous Christmas Car Buying Ads

I can’t stand those Lexus “December to Remember” commercials. They make it seem like buying your spouse an expensive car for the holidays is something that’s totally normal. And now, other luxury auto brands like Audi and Infiniti have similar spots. So this WeatherTech ad made me chuckle. A woman shows off a bow-covered car to her husband. Turns out, it is his car. But she got him WeatherTech floor liners, which seems like a more reasonable thing.

The Lexus Commercial With “Blue Skies”

It’s not often that a commercial will make me look up a song written 90 years ago, but that’s just what happened with this Lexus spot. “Blue Skies” was written by Irving Berlin in 1926. Here’s a nice version of the song from Ella Fitzgerald.

Lexus December To Remember: Let’s Go To The Shematomas Show!

This commercial came on during football yesterday, and it started a conversation with my friends about whether the Shematomas were a real band. And indeed they are, straight outta the mean streets of Calgary. I wonder how they got such prominent placement in a Lexus commercial. Anyway, this ad isn’t quite as schlocky as some of the December to Remember spots of the past, but it’s still pretty lame. Are we really to believe that these people are going to take their Lexus to see an indie/punk band? The song used in the spot is “Family and Friends” by Steve Kujala, which is the official Lexus December to Remember theme.

Wish I Could Forget Those Stupid Lexus “December To Remember” Commercials

It’s December. Some people resent the commercialism/consumerism of the holidays. I tend to like it, because it brings people to my blog. So Lexus is back with more of those dumbass “December to Remember” commercials.

These are the kind of commercials that are so mocked and ridiculed that I’ll pretend what I’m saying is original and not in any of the YouTube comments. Being rich enough to buy my sweetie a Lexus for the holidays? Different world, man. Does everyone automatically know the Lexus song? I mean, I recognize it now, especially since I watch a lot of commercials, but the average person would probably get it confused with NBC’s Olympics theme or something. Taking the time to enter it as a ringtone, in a music box, or as elevator music? God, that’s lame. I wonder if Lexus sells those giant bows. In the still crappy (but possibly improving?) economy, that might be all most of us could afford.
